ZERBIN released their LP 'Darling' on April 14, 2015. Self-produced by the band (Jason Zerbin and Peter Mol) and mixed by Dave Pensado (Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Elton John), Tom Dobrzanski (Said the Whale, Hey Ocean!, We Are the City) and Jason himself, the album displays a fresh and infectious incarnation of symphonic alt-pop, a mixing of the band's Alberta roots and West-Coast home. 

Recorded over the course of six weeks in a one hundred-year-old house on Vancouver Island, ZERBIN have created what feels like a true debut for the band. Straying from preset production avenues they drew on an assortment of vintage gear to create and capture the unique sonics of 'Darling'. This record is anthemic, symphonic and addictive with songs that capture your head and heart.

Darling's lead single 'Worlds on Fire' is packed with an undeniable indie-pop swagger. While telling a story of young lovers during the apocalypse, ZERBIN have managed to channel bands like Young the Giant and Vampire Weekend, enveloping it all in a foray of swirling guitars and ZERBIN'S trademark anthems. 

ZERBIN is best known for 2013's EP 'Touch' which secured them a number of EMAs and who's single 'New Earth' garnered a spot on alt-rock charts, going on to be chosen for a variety of international Film & TV spots. They have spent the past two years sharing stages with the likes of The Flaming Lips, Bruno Mars and Arcade Fire consistently winning hearts of both fans and industry folk with their sincere songs and captivating live performances.
